Carnival of Ohio Politics #108

You know, given all the unbelievable comments, quotes and revealed behaviors coming down right now, I'm guessing that there isn't anyone who couldn't learn a little something from at least one of the 108 yoga poses for idiots. The only thing that would make that book better would be if it was 108 yoga poses for bloggers.

Pose #1 comes from Roland Hansen Commentary. He wants us to think about the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority and The Money Tree. And I don't think that post has anything to do with Phil Rizzutto and The Money Store.

Into My Own assumes Pose #2 and answers why levies are failing (hint: it's not because voters hate schools).

Coming in for Pose #3 is this week's third set of submissions that, coincidentally, included three posts, two from the Keeler Political Report and one from The Point. First up, Alex Arshinkoff loyalists are ousted from the Summit County Board of Elections and thoughts on Joe Hallett's prediction that Governor Ted Strickland will be the veep choice of Hillary Clinton, should she win the nomination to be the Democratic presidential candidate in this year's general election. And from The Points, Richland County voters don't take advantage of the paper ballots provided by Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.

Progress Ohio
takes Pose #4 with two submissions this week: one focuses on the Ohio Election Justice Campaign and the second concerns The Wacky World of Now (okay, so it's not exactly Ohio politics but it does kind of fit well with the yoga theme).

Drifting into Pose #5 is Bearing Drift Ohio is a riff on the riff of Saturday Night Live's riff on Hillary Clinton's "I'll be ready on Day One" riff. And, based on the submissions this week, I feel safe in saying that not only are some of us political bloggers getting pressed to stay enthused in politics just at this moment, but, as this post shows you, we're feeling pummeled by other local happenings too.

The Dean of Cincinnati
poses for #6 with Uncounted: A non-partisan tale of voter fraud. Another Beacon writer, Justin Jeffre, looks at Robert Kennedy, Jr. at NKU and how a former prosecutor says that the drug war is a horrendous failure and now supports legalization.

For some Ohio primary perspectives, we've got Divided We Stand United We Fall in Pose #7. While the Sunday Soliloquy tells The Story in Ohio and Texas, Divided We Stand's author believes that Jonathan Alter has a comprehension problem. Ooooo - such bloggy stuff.

How's this question, posed here at #8 by Lisa Renee of Glass City Jungle: Was there fraud with our presidential primary or were election procedures not followed; it appears it could be a combination of both?

I wouldn't recommend even Just Blowing Smoke while doing whatever the book says is Pose #9, but blogging about post-election depression? Well, I can see how someone might want to do yoga and smoke at the same time if they've got that.

How about group poses for #10? Network Weaving encourages us to look at how friend talking to friends makes so many things possible that, if we're alone and not communicative, can't ever be accomplished.

Jeff of Ohio Daily Blog holds Pose #11 this week. He wants to highlight an interview that he did with OH-03 congressional candidate Jane Mitakides that will help you really get to know her. Always magnanimous, Jeff says that I should give myself credit for sending him information about how a surge in provisional ballots could trigger severe criticism of the election process (I know, are you thinking, what's news about that!? how sad we are sometimes). Finally, nobody does it better: News and Notes on Ohio Congressional Races. The MSM cannot touch him in this regard. Honestly.

Pose #12 shows Conservative Culture in a three-fer: a local woman is proud to become an American, Congressman Jim Jordan's son wins a state title and an opinion that Governor Ted Strickland likes the idea of voting do-overs.

Bonobos can probably do 108 yoga poses far more easily than at least your truly, but Blue Bexley makes it to Pose #13. He gives us posts on a late hit in the OH-12 as well as a detailed description of how Bexley, Ohio voted and how Obama takes bluer urban precincts though he sees no correlation in the 'burbs.

For my Pose #14, I will contort the topics of the dangers of Jason Werner in the OH-10, my first music video, featuring ODP Chair Chris Redfern and blog post for the good of mankind: help get Dan Moulthrop to go bald and raise money for childrens cancer research.

Thank you to all of this week's contributors and readers. Please pass on the info about submitting and reading and, of course, commenting too.

Great job but I'm afraid to see what pose #8 would be...what if I get stuck?

:-)

Jill said...

I wonder if Amazon would let us search inside the book for that page... lol

Lisa Renee said...

I searched online...what I found? Made me very afraid...

:-)

Seriously though I am a fan of Yoga, it is a great way to not only stretch the body but to improve your peace of mind.

OK - so what happened to the 94 poses this week?

Jill said...

lol - I know MW - why don't YOU do them - I can live vicariously. :)

adap2k said...

Pat yourselves on the back, you've combined a bunch of links that point to the irrelevancy of the blogosphere.

(With the exception to the election fraud .)

Tim Higgins said...

Great job as always, though I have to ask:

Which pose is the one where you are hunched over a keyboard in an uncomfortable chair? It seems to be the one I spend most of my time in and I would just like to know.

Jill said...

Tim! That is a great comment! lol I think it's Bikram Blogger Yoga, no?

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
